28th Mar 2018

Becky Kay has clinched back-to-back Bowra & O’Dea Women’s Classic titles after a blistering final round 67 gifted the Queenslander her third straight national rankings event at Cottesloe GC on Wednesday afternoon.

The emerging star was all class on the final day, turning at the ninth hole some seven strokes ahead of nearest competitor Stephanie Bunque, before rounding off the victory with two-under on the back nine.

Kay, 19, finished seven shots ahead of Bunque in her wire-to-wire victory, with Doey Choi and Kirsten Rudgeley finishing a further three-shots back.

The win also sees Kay reach the summit of the Karrie Webb Series, overtaking Grace Kim in the official standings.

The Classic means Kay complete a trio of tournament wins, with Riversdale Cup and Rene Erichsen Salver also in her 2018 trophy cabinet.

Victorian Bunque became only the second women during the week to shoot under-par, with four-straight birdies on the back nine lifting the youngster to second place.

A final round 72 to Kathryn Norris saw three Western Australian competitors in the top six overall, with Maddison Hinson-Tolchard also enjoying the Cottesloe outlay.

Janine Northrop earned a six-stroke victory in the 54-hole seniors event, ending with a final round 84.

Lisa Taylor was the winner of the Mid-Amateur event, with a round of 88 enough to see her gain the crown.
